Rare 1950s Dorothy O'Hara Silk Gown

A very rare and wonderful Dorothy O'Hara gown in a stunning combination of silk, silk chiffon and hand worked lace and ribbon detailing. The skirt flows to the floor in two fantastic layers of silk - a taffeta underneath and miles of silk chiffon in a soft cafe au lait color over that. The effect is of lightness and floating when the wearer moves! The top is spectacular the same silk chiffon is fully appliqued with a cut work lace whose edges are all followed by silk ribbon piping stitched by hand into place! A halter of silk chiffon goes around the neck for the perfect Goddess feel finish. A superb dress from a tough to find designer! Excellent condition. Item# DD872
